Thanks so much! I think it's really fun being a "foodie", and it justifies the years spent watching Top Chef and trying nice restaurants.

Will the real citrus swirl please stand up?

We arrived today! Everything's going really well so far - we checked in at the Yacht Club and have already enjoyed some really great food (I'm quite excited to do my Yachtsman review now ).

Also, we cancelled our California Grill ressie that we had for Wednesday. I still plan on stopping by for appetizers in the lounge, but that means we can hopefully fit in another signature.

I'm probably not going to do a live report, since the internet is barely working on my computer. But I just had to share this update with everyone. A beloved snack has returned to the Magic Kingdom - the real citrus swirl!

Citrus swirl is frozen orange juice slush swirled with vanilla soft serve. It was a very popular snack at Sunshine Tree Terrace, and while it wasn't ever my personal favorite, I was horribly disappointed to see it replaced with an artificial orange version. The fake orange soft serve tasted like medicine to me, and I can't believe I got the opportunity to have another real citrus swirl!



Just look at it!



And here's a pic of it glistening in the sunlight



Personally, I thought the ratio of orange slush to vanilla soft serve was a bit high, and I still prefer the pineapple-vanilla swirl dole whip. But this citrus swirl is still such a vast improvement over its fake counterpart IMO that I really didn't mind. After all, I wanted to taste real orange juice flavor, and I got plenty of it. Plus, there's a cool textural contrast between the creamy soft serve and icy slush.

Overall, if you're as excited as I am to see a unique and beloved snack return to MK, I recommend getting one of these to enjoy. It might or might not become one of your favorites, but it's still something to celebrate in the world of Disney food (now I'll finally have an answer when Disney restaurant hosts ask me what I'm celebrating ).

I am soooo excited by this news. We had the 'fake' orange swirl one summer, thinking it would be really refreshing and were totally disappointed with how un-orangey it was. That looks so much better
